Imagine Orem Minecraft Contest
Sharpen those pickaxes! It's time to compete in the Imagine Orem Minecraft Contest.

Welcome to the 2018 “Imagine Orem” Minecraft Competition! This is a building competition open to all ages. The goal is to create downtown Orem how you envision it in the future! You can choose to focus on a few buildings at a specific intersection, or if you’re feeling extra ambitious you can create a whole downtown district!

Judging will be based on the following criteria:

  • How well it incorporates different uses (housing, shopping, offices & workplaces, parks, recreation, nature)
  • How well it solves a problem (e.g. pollution, crime, traffic congestion, etc.)
  • Overall design & creativity
  • Incorporation of green infrastructure (trees, parks, landscaping)
  • Aesthetics (beauty, style, colors / textures used)


  1. Anything profane, obscene, or violent will be automatically disqualified.
  2. You may work individually or with a team of no more than 5 members.
  3. All creations must be of your own work (no downloading and using other peoples’ creations from the internet).
  4. The base world should be a blank to begin with.
  5. Entries can be uploaded as a Minecraft world save file (.minecraft) or a screenshot, or a link to a video walkthrough on YouTube.
  6. You or your team may submit as many entries as you wish (though quality is better than quantity).
  7.  All entries must be submitted by 12:00pm (noon) May30th.

Finalists will be selected by Library and Planning Staff, and winners will be chosen by the Orem “CoderDojo” youth group. Winners will be announced at the Orem Summerfest Opening day (June 4th).
